The Liebster Award

I was nominated for the liebster award by Tina from the blog An Eclectic Twist

Her blog is colorful, stylish, budget friendly and full of diys of awesomeness pretty much sums up what Eclectic Twist is all about.  The focus is to inspire and empower all who come across it. I do full diy tutorials on everything from picking paint colors to installing faux wood beams! I do shopping guides which are lists of my top fave things, design tips to get a high end feel in your space, as well as share our home in house tour posts with frequent changes. It’s always a party and everyone is invited over at the Eclectic Twist.

I would have to say my very first blog post is my favorite. I started this blog after being inspired by Iceland. I have a huge soft spot for that beautiful country! I just love it there!!
2. How did you get started on this adventure we call blogging?
I’ve always been into writing and photography, and once I learned that other social media influencers out there are turning this into a career–I I had to hop on that band wagon! I’m really loving it so far and I’m learning and teaching myself everything so it makes for an interesting ride!

Teleportation! I would love to be able to be anywhere in the world in a blink of an eye!

Deciding to enlist as an active duty member just 2 months before graduating high school It was a rushed decision, but the best thing I could have ever done for myself.
6. What character do you relate to the most? (any book, movie, tv show)
My husband says I’m Jess from the show New Girl but I think I’m too quiet for that comparison…I’d say the polar bear from the cartoon networks kid show– We Bear Bears! Hahaha just food and sleep…I’m good with that!
7. Dogs or Cats?
8. What’s your favorite way to unwind?
I’m trying to think of something other than food related, but I can’t. So- food. Eating!
